There are more tools in the gym than you can find on a weight carrier. To really challenge yourself and change the way you handle the back of the day, take a towel.
This routine from Men's Health Fitness Director Ebenezer Samuel, C.S.C.S., uses a towel to challenge your forearms while you recruiter your back muscles. "The towel is the key to your forearms," says Samuel. "It will cause you to squeeze and really challenge your grip."
You can use the challenge to start or end a day of back or, if you're in a hurry, you can combine it with a few accessory moves to serve as the centerpiece of your workout.
To complete the Landmine Rowboard Challenge, you will need a Landmine Anchor and a Barbell. If there is not one in your gym, check out this option or just put one end of the bar in one corner (if you do so, cover the dumbbell with another towel so as not to damage the wall).
